Myspace // "The Way We Were" [mp3]
I was hugely disappointed that I wasn't able to check out XX Teen's set at The Great Escape, but my spirits improved when I received a copy of their new single in my mailbox last week. That song, "The Way We Were," is best described as arty post punk though with a surprisingly catchy chorus. The band recently finished recording their debut album, Welcome To Goon Island, with Ross Orton (MIA, Bromheads Jacket, Kid Acne) in Sheffield. The album is being billed as "a beguiling and innovative record in the great art school tradition" and should see its release on Mute Records sometime in July 2008.
